Higher Ed Panel Schedules Special Meeting

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The state's Council on Postsecondary
Education has scheduled a special meeting for Wednesday, when it
may go into closed session to "discuss the appointment of a
person."

The meeting comes amid scrutiny of the panel's recent move to
make interim president Brad Cowgill permanent.

Gov. Steve Beshear has told the council not to sign a contract
with Cowgill and has demanded a new national search. He's meeting
with council chairman John Turner Tuesday afternoon.

Attorney General Jack Conway has said the council violated state
law when it picked Cowgill without doing a national search.

The council is the state's coordinating agency for Kentucky's
public universities and community and technical colleges.
